The fabricated sluice gates before installation in the guides on the inside face of each pier on the right, November 12, 1896. This view shows the downstream face of the gates. The upstream face is a flat plate. The area where the gates are standing would become the beginning of the tailrace channel leading to the Des Plaines River. (MWRD photo, disc 10, image 62)
